Fan Fiction

Announcements


Welcome everyone! My name is Brian and I'm moderating the boards. Here are a few basic rules:

- no last names, names of schools or cities (but states are okay);
- age/grade is okay, but no birthdays;
- no being mean, rude, or cursing;
- no posting your email address or links to other websites;
- Please read my FAQ’s post.
- If you still have a question, feel free to ask me here.

I hope you all enjoy the boards! We want them to be a safe, fun place to get excited about HP!

Hi Technologygirl,

If you wanted to discuss a character in the books you find annoying, that is allowed. However, if a person called another user on the boards annoying, I would not approve that post.

Thank you,
-Moderator Brian

@Brian: speaking of characters, the character I find annoying would be, of course, Lockhart. GAH! An arrogant guy that hasn't been on adventures and BRAGS about them! Please. I doubt that he knows how to perform spells. Do you find him annoying? I know I do.

Okay. Got it. I just have a question. If we do use inappropriate language, I know you'll just take it out, but what happens if someone were to use it too much? Would that person get banned or something?

Hi Horsepony136,

 

Yes, if someone uses inappropriate language too often, they may not be allowed to post again.

 

Thank you,

- Moderator Brian

What if the context was appropriately confusing, but the language itself was appropriate? Any ideas on how to make sure I abide to the board rules but not make it confusing?
